Never buy enough (be enough)

You can never buy enough physical things to make up for inner emptiness. Don’t settle for incomplete shopping: “With all your getting get understanding.” –Proverbs 4:7

An abundance of stuff has failed to “Make America kind within.” Greatness exudes kindness in every direction. Never try to buy enough — instead let God show you how to be enough.

A life without God functions like a court with no judge. God’s love should never be manipulated and used as an attempt to justify and/or approve of sin.

Some people say that history is “His story” (God’s). but if we leave the parts we don’t like out, it becomes our story. Left out parts of American history make it difficult to understand race.

The idea that skin color delineates quality, status, intelligence, or class is a lie that has caused immeasurable human suffering.

A vision for loving community —
There’s only one race, you and me,
No matter the color that we see.

About Steve Simms

I like to look and think outside the box. In college I encountered Jesus Christ and I have been passionate about trying to get to know Him better ever since. My wife and I co-lead a non-traditional expression of the body of Christ in Nashville based on open participation and Spirit-led sharing. We long to see the power and passion of the first Christ-followers come to life in our time. I have written a book about our experiences called, "Beyond Church: An Invitation To Experience The Lost Word Of The Bible--Ekklesia" that is available in Kindle & paperback @ http://amzn.to/2nCr5dP
